No one? Bueller? Sharing is caring, y'all.
Drop some Klamath knowledge on us.

Mt. Ashland campground is pretty but BUSY! This is about what you would expect for a campground that's only about 10 miles off of the interstate. We were happy with our campsite and the vault toilets were reasonably clean. We plan to return!

History of Klamath National Forest

The Klamath National Forest covers an area of 1,700,000 acres located in Siskiyou County, Northern California and Jackson County, Oregon. The forest includes five wilderness areas: Marble Mountain, Russian Wilderness Area, Trinity Alps, Red Buttes Wilderness Area and Siskiyou Wilderness Area.

President Theodore Roosevelt created the Klamath Forest Reserve in 1905 as part of the Forest Reserves. In 1907 the name was changed to National Forest.
